About Me

Chris Fasnacht
Web Designer

Chris FasnachtHey, I’m Chris Fasnacht, and this is my design portfolio site. As you will be able to see most of my design work is executed on the Internet as a web site or a video posted to the web. My graphic design ability is evident in all that I do. I’m proficient with HTML, CSS, Photoshop, and Illustrator. In addition to web design I can produce quality print work as well as run a video camera, edit and effectively determine the best use of video for it’s purpose. I have a wide range of knowledge and experience in multimedia and web design. I can manage & work with many team members on multiple projects at the same time.

I like to think of myself as a ‘Code Hacker’, someone who can simply get the web design job done. I’m not a computer science programmer (although I can write PHP or ASP). I will find a way to get the programming task completed. Give me a web application and I can make it look the way we want it to.

I’ve been doing design work professionally for over 15 years, and it’s still something I love to do.

If you are in looking to have some web work done, give me a shout. You can grab a downloadable copy of my resumé here (PDF) or simply see a web version of it below.
